The former trade minister, Alan Kyeremanten has stated that he was the one who brought the current NPP Ashanti regional Chairman, Wontumi, to the NPP. He urged him to be careful with the kind of words he say about him, just because he was competing his candidate.
“If Chairman Wontumi has someone to thank in the NPP, it should be me. I was the one who held the hands of Wontumi and introduced him into the party. Who is Wontumi? I was the one who brought him into the party. I brought him there with good motive. He is a businessman” he said in Twi.
This comes after the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Ashanti Regional Chairman, Bernard Antwi-Boasiako, ordered the removal of all campaign materials of Alan Kyerematen in the area.
Chairman Wontumi, as he is popularly called said he will ensure the region is rid of all posters, billboards, and other advertisements of the former Trade Minister.
He disclosed this in an interview on Adom FM’s morning show Dwaso Nsem Tuesday.
Chairman Wontumi stated that the resignation of the former NPP presidential hopeful from the party has necessitated his decision.
“Right now that he has declared he is no longer a member of the NPP, I will send letters around the region for his posters everywhere, including the party offices, to be removed,” he said.
To ensure enforcement of the directive, the Chairman has issued a memorandum to all regional chairpersons in the 47 constituencies of the region.
Alan’s criticism of Wontumi comes after the former criticised his decision to break away from the NPP and contest as an independent candidate in the 2024 presidential elections.
Wontumi, in an interview on his TV station, Wontumi TV, on Monday, said Alan was ungrateful for the decision he took and that he (Alan) has only invited curses on himself by leaving the NPP.
“…President Kufour made you an ambassador and you were so happy. You (Alan), your girlfriends, your wife and your children enjoyed it so much. You sent them to good schools. President Kufuor also made you trade minister and because of this, you became so rich that you were nick-named Alan Cash.
